Less Is More


I’ve noticed a strange phenomenon in my life. The more I know about something, the less confident I feel presenting on it or teaching it. Maybe it’s because the more research you do, the more you realize that it’s impossible to know everything about any one topic. It’s the same phenomenon I’ve noticed as I get farther in my education. In high school, I was pretty sure I was a genius. In my undergrad, I realized I was not a genius. By my grad program, I was convinced that I had the intellectual capacity of a slug.

Have you ever noticed that the more you know, the less you feel like you know? How do you deal with that feeling? Perhaps I should follow minimalistic approaches?
